Old Market Library - TYIN Tegnestue
TYIN tegnestue is a non-profit organization working humanitarian through architecture. TYIN is run by five architect students from NTNU and the projects are financed by more than 60 Norwegian companies, as well as private contributions. The Old Market Library is built in a 100 years old market building. The section for the library is 3×9 meter, with a back yard facing a small canal. The roof and walls were in poor condition and it was important that new elements in the building supported themselves, without attaching to the old structures. Through the use of local, inexpensive materials they have tried to show that this is something the inhabitants of the community can do by their own initiative, using their own resources.
